In today’s digitally driven world, data center owners and managers can find themselves facing the challenge of migrating, consolidating, or transitioning their workload. This migration can be to another data center, a Colocation data center or to the cloud. Such transitions can be complicated, time-consuming, and risky, requiring meticulous planning and execution.
Fortunately, a software tool such as Elemental, developed by Altus Technologies Corporation, can help manage this process effectively.
Elemental is a comprehensive migration management tool that can track applications and dependencies, physical and virtual components, contacts such as stakeholders, subject matter experts, as well as people and teams that will validate successful migrations. Elemental combined with the Altus Method for Migration, which provides a proven method for successful migration, enables users to migrate workloads seamlessly.
One of the most significant benefits of Elemental is its ability to organize “Move Elements” – the units of work that should stay together for a move. These can include applications, infrastructure, and data. By organizing these Move Elements, users can ensure that critical dependencies are not missed, and the migration process is optimized.
Elemental also provides a way to schedule migration timelines by tracking the migration “Events” – periods of time for moving workloads. With the ability to track assumptions, issues, and risks, users can be prepared for potential problems before they arise, reducing the likelihood of significant disruptions to the migration process.
Additionally, Elemental provides several dashboards that enable management and teams to track the status of the migration in real-time. This transparency allows all stakeholders to be informed and make decisions based on the current status of the migration, ultimately improving the quality of the migration process.
In summary, Elemental is a powerful migration management tool that helps data center owners and managers transition workloads seamlessly. By organizing Move Elements, tracking migration Events, and providing real-time dashboards, Elemental enables users to see dependencies, manage risks, and ultimately improve the success of the migration process.
